Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Fatherhood initiatives to promote family preservation: A grant proposal
by Norvell, Jeremiah Wesley, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 83; 1523308
Abstract (Summary)

Fathers are affronted with consistent and systematic barriers and frequent discrimination in their interactions with child welfare entities. The unique set of challenges that these fathers face in parenting evidences a need for father-specific services. A local agency by the name of Families Uniting Families has made attempts to provide for these needs and began implementing the Project Fatherhood program in the greater Long Beach, California area in 2010 to support these fathers. The hope of this agency is to offer a Spanish-language section to their current program to meet the ever-increasing need for providing services to Latino fathers. A review of current and past literature was performed to highlight the need for programs that focus on the unique needs that fathers face, specifically Latino fathers. Neither successful receipt of funding nor submission of the grant proposal is a requirement for successful completion of this thesis project.
